Heartache to Joy

July 2 - 7 2019

San Miguel de Allende, Mexico

A retreat to heal your broken heart and invite in more joy

5 Days to Joy

A unique and innovative process of yoga and creative expression to heal and see relationships in a completely new way, regain your confidence, let go of the past and create a lot more joy in your everyday life!

San Miguel de Allende

Voted "Best City in the World" by Travel and Leisure 2 years in a row. You will be luxuriously cared for in a 5 star boutique hotel, Viñedos San Lucas, situated on acres of gardens, vineyards, olive trees and lavender fields, with stunning mountain views, just outside the center of town.

Do you want more joy in your life?


We all experience loss in our lives at one point or another. Below is a list of some of these losses, though there are many more. To read more visit our Resources page.



Death of a loved one

Loss of a job

Moving to a new place

Loss of pregnancy

Empty Nest

Death of a pet

Family feud

Loss of faith 


Change in health  or illness 


Change in financial state

Loss of trust, approval, safety

When your heart is broken, it's closed, blocking your ability to change and grow.

  • Do you feel no one really understands what you are going through?

  • Are you exhausted and worn out?

  • Do you want to gain a new perspective?

  • Do you want to move your life forward towards joy and peace?


Ri and Jen combine forces to create a unique process of yoga and creative

expression that enables you to:

  • See relationships in a new way 

  • Regain your confidence

  • Let go of the past

  • Learn life-long tools to nourish yourself

  • Create more joy in your life

You do not need experience in art or yoga to reap the benefits of this work. No matter what level you are at, you will be enlightened by our process. We look forward to working with you!

Our unique process of yoga and creative expression will safely and gently guide you to connect to your body and intuitive mind, gain insight and lightness, and remove impediments to living joyfully.

Our program is not therapy, nor is it a substitute for professional help.

 Joy lives concealed in grief. -Rumi
